Well I don't know what all the haters are on about but I loved this final book in the Fifty Shades trilogy. In fact for me each book just got better, with "Freed" becoming my favourite. Granted I had a few issues, like the constant Mr. Grey/Mrs. Grey every single time they addressed each other, which was all cute and newlywedish at first and then just proceeded to drive me crazy. But I still had trouble putting this one down; I am a total sucker when it comes to the tortured hero so I understood my falling for Christian but Ana surprised me and I came to appreciate her as she grew a backbone and learned how to handle her man and his many moods.

Plus there's an actual story here; I mean stuff happens other than in the playroom. We get car chases, assorted stalkers, blips, kidnappings, bar fights, car accidents, drunk Christian, out of control Christian, raging Christian, playful Christian, needy f'd up Christian it was just such an all-out emotional journey and managed to leave me shocked several times. I also found it fascinating to watch Christian lose control and for Ana take it, not what I was expecting but all his shades finally made sense.

Ana's hilarious inner goddess is still with us and I was happy to see the inclusion of more sexy, fun, playful or in this case argumentative e-mails as Ana tries to stand her ground against a very controlling and used to being in charge Christian. These things were part of what separated Fifty from the Twilight universe for me and also why James' writing grew on me since that first book which felt immature, you could really hear her voice here and I now can't wait to see what she writes next.

I also loved the ending which finally "freed" Christian and left me in a very happy place; it just felt so complete, like okay you guys are going to make it, thanks for the journey. Of course this could have something to do with the many assorted epilogues we get, my favourite being the inclusion of Christian's Midnight Sun-ish POV first meeting of Ana. I would read the whole series again from inside his head. Laters.

"I need control Ana. Like I need you. It's the only way I can function. I can't let go of it. I've tried... And yet, with you..." He shakes his head in exasperation. I swallow. This is the heart of the dilemma -his need for control and his need for me. I refuse to believe these are mutually exclusive."

"Do you want a drink?" I ask super sweetly.
"No thanks" he says not taking his eyes off me, and I know that he's helpless. He does not know what to do with me. It's comical on one level and tragic on another."

I am not much of a reader these days but my friends were all talking about it so I decided to try it out. I downloaded it before going on vacation so I had something to do on the plane if I got bored. Well, turns out I didn't get a chance to read it on the plane but I did start reading it the first week into my vacation and I could not put it down surprisingly... I read it in 3 short days... would have been sooner but I have a baby to tend to. And then I was sad I hadn't gotten book 2 to read while I was there!! I like how it isn't like any other romance novel. It definitely over reached my expectations and I am now on book two!!

Book three was the best of the three as now the story begins to have a future, and the characters become better people, and the mysteries are coming to an end. I enjoyed the Trilogy.

For a long time, I didn't want to read cuz the subject of SM wasn't appealing to me. Until someone presented it to me on the "relationship" point of view. So I gave it a try. I devoured it in 3 days. Bought the second and third, and devoured them also. That's self explanatory. A bit to explicit when it comes to the details ( I think the sexiness and the sensuality comes through without the "porn" aspect) but all in all, the characters are interesting and so is the story

I picked up this book to see what all the fuss was about. In the beginning, I thought it was going to be a regular erotic romance. It was a little slow going, but as I read on, I got more and more into it - to the point where I Literally couldn't put it down. I really got emotionally involved. This is the first book in a very long time that made me cry several times. A deep, heartfelt cry. I enjoyed reading Fifty Shades of Grey and can't wait to read the two other books in trilogy.

I bought myself this book after having received the first two as gifts.I could NOT put it down! It was amazing, very detailed and intriguing. It does border the lines of sexual fantasy though. I recommend this to all mommies who need to have a day out of hte life of a mommy, I read this book in three days while being a stay at home mom and I would read it even while cooking!

I loved the story line and would recommend it to any romance - thriller readers. I loved all the psychological aspect of Christian's character and how he evolves during the course of the trilogy as so does Anastasia in some ways. I wish some would start by reading the book instead of judging the story line as a bdsm absorbed only book.
Than you for your work of art!

Are you kidding me....I thought I wouldn't like it after hearing all the hype about it, but I couldn't put them down. I went to Costa Rica in the middle of reading them and they were in my carry-on....LOL!

HIGHLY recommend....first book not as good as the second and third, (but very good in itself anyway) you need to read the first to get the story line.

What a great read this was - although prepare yourself for things you didn't even know of! Definitely R rated.
